Following a review, around 200 DA firms representing around 1,000 individual brokers will now have access to the products.

Mark Bullard, head of sales at NatWest Intermediary Solutions, says the firm will continue to monitor the situation with a view to making the corporate range accessible to more intermediary firms.

He says: “We are operating in a rapidly changing market and have to make sure we are able to manage and control the volume and mix of business we receive to preserve our service standards. While we continue to take a measured approach, we are pleased to be able to widen access to our corporate range to a sizeable chunk of the DA market.”
